Chota Tingrai Special Summer Green Tea

description

Of all the summer green teas we've sampled so far, this one stood for its clean, mouth-filling flavors. It doesn't have the edgy quality that most Assam green teas do. Instead, the liquor is ample the mouth and stays so throughout the length of the cup. What also caught our attention was the umami texture of the brew which takes the overall experience of this tea up by significant notches.
